Man-ipulated nature


Here's some of the rocks I've taken from the beaches on Block Island and stacked in my back yard north of Providence. I'm always restacking them, even in the winter - reminds me of the beach.

I stopped by the side of the road to photograph the January thaw . . . muddy fields, birds in flight, etc. As I stepped across the road to get a close-up of the field, I almost stepped on this deer track smack-dab- in -the -middle- of- the- tractor or snow plow tracks. Interesting opportunity, so I took it. Can you see it?

I can't take credit for this photo, although it was taken with my cameral. While Carol H. (not my mother, who is also Carol H.) was testing out the camera, she took this photo of her neighbor's tree, wrapped with bedsheets and duct tape. Apparently her neighbor didn't like all those branches, and talked a tree guy into cutting them off. It's not an art piece, either. Just a strange thing.

The snow-covered, plowed field looked like white waves of whipped frosting. The temperature was 2 degrees, so I didn't linger long in this field.

 

We've found two wells in our woods so far. This one was caving in, so we had a stonemason shore it up last year.

 

 

Hay Bale Pumpkin

I have driven past this hay bale for over a month. Today I stopped and took its portrait. It was a foggy, rainy day, and this cheered me up.

Here's the finished crop art piece in our front pasture by Stan Herd.  Kevin Roberts sent this image to us.  He was in the bucket lift and shot this from there.  The image isn't really visible from the ground.  Stan's expertise in creating these images to be seen from the air is amazing.
